So I have an old i7 965 Extreme processor C0 stepping...it's stock clock is at 3.2Ghz and I overclocked it to 3.8Ghz.
I did a prime 95 blend test yesterday for around 5 hours 35 mins, there was no BSOD, no errors or warnings.
The Max temp recorded via Real Temp was on core 1 was 82C, the rest of the cores was below that.Ambient room temprature is 23C.
I started another prime 95 blend test again today morning for 6 hours there was again no BSOD and no errors, and the test is still on going..I guess it's almost 9 hours now, it'll pass 12 hours when I come back from work. I checked the temps before I left work and max temp was 87C.
So, my question is since I got no BSOD and no errors in prime 95....does this mean that my overclock is stable? and are my temps fine considering its running on 100% load all this time and i'm on air cooling. My case is a HAF-X with a True 120 Heatsink fan that is almost 3 years old or more along with the stock HAF-X fans and the motherboard is an EVGA 4-Way classified board (E762).
I'll post my bios template when I get back from work along with temps from Real Temp.
Sorry for making this long and thanks in advance
